Verogy to Transform Three Connecticut Landfills into Solar Energy Hubs

Verogy, a leading solar energy developer based in West Hartford, Connecticut announced that the company has received permits from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) to convert former landfills in Deep River, Middletown, and Montville, CT into sites that will host solar energy projects. The capped landfills will now host solar projects with an aggregate size of 2.15 MW DC, and will produce over 2,600 MWh of zero carbon, clean energy annually – enough to power 252 homes for a year.

Landfills are often seen as environmental burdens to their communities. Through Verogy, these parcels will be given a new lease on life and will be converted from underutilized sites into useful assets. In total, Verogy will redevelop more than seven acres of remediated land, bringing the properties back into productive use.

The recent approvals from CT DEEP reflect a core strategy of the company, which is to develop and prioritize opportunities to convert landfill sites into clean energy producing properties.

“Verogy is grateful to Connecticut DEEP’s staff for their thoughtful review of our three landfill projects,” said Will Herchel, CEO of Verogy. “These projects mark a dual victory for the environment. First, by generating renewable energy, these projects will significantly reduce carbon emissions, contributing to the fight against climate change. Second, the use of capped landfills for the projects represents an important achievement in land reclamation and sustainability.”
